A very complicated Quit Claim Deed process… Involves a divorce we have nothing to do with. Unsure where to assist

Hello,

So my Mom went through a rough divorce back in 2004 which ruined her credit so she needed co-signers for her new home. Mom Mom’s brother and his wife co-signed on the home back in 2007 and my Mom has been living in her house every since.

My Mom has paid $500k towards her mortgage, plus taxes and repairs all on her own since then, she owes $89k on the mortgage. She pays extra every month to get the home paid off. The brother and wife have contributed a total of $0 towards my Mom’s house besides buying mulch one year, lol

My Aunt (Mom’s brothers wife) decided to file for divorce randomly in February on their sons birthday. Leaving out all the crazy shit going on that divorce, she wants off my Mom’s mortgage.

The wife’s lawyer is now holding my Mom’s house hostage in exchange to get everything they want from my Mom’s brother. When I say hostage, I mean the lawyer won’t let the wife sign the Quit Claim Deed until my Uncle basically gives away everything he has, including custody of their son.

If the quit claim deed doesn’t get signed in a timely matter, due to interest rates changing my Mom won’t be able to refinance.

If he does not relinquish everything she wants, they will order the sale of my Mom’s home since the wife is on the deed.

The worst part is.. The wife has created fake check book ledgers showing payments to my Mom for her house. She’s also states a payment of $5,000 to my Mom in 1997 (home was bought in 2007) was for my Mom’s home, when it was for my brothers funeral…

All lawyers say “Yes, she is the on the deed. But in court it wouldn’t hold up for her to get equity as she has contributed $0 to your home”

At this point, what can my Mom do? Can she sue the wife (my aunt)? Can she file some sort of motion in court through the divorce? This whole thing is frustrating and annoying.

I’m in real estate and I have no idea how to help, our lawyer is on vacation so this is why I’m here asking

Any help is much much appreciated..
